It could be, in other words, that mountain villages throughout the West could offer what Stirn calls “an archaeological roadmap” that plots the spread of Numic language. [Read about similar, potentially history-rewriting discoveries in the Southwest: “ Long-Hidden Sites Discovered in the Southwest May Change Views of Ancient Migrations “] “More corroborating evidence would be necessary to prove this, but for the time being, it is a very thought provoking possibility,” he said.
